Posted June 14, 2017

The first attack was reported from Tral in Pulwama district of south Kashmir when terrorists threw a grenade at a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) camp.

Two CRPF troopers were injured in a grenade attack by militants on their camp in Tral town yesterday.

On Monday night, two CRPF men were wounded after militants fired a grenade from an under barrel grenade launcher (UBGL) on their camp in Tral.

An Intelligence Bureau official in Kashmir told OneIndia that militants are likely to carry out more attacks and hence security forces must stay on high alert. The camp housed troops of the 180th battalion of CRPF. The attacks - four in south and one in north Kashmir - came in a span of four hours. The attack resulted in injuries to two policemen.

No militant outfit has claimed the responsibility for the grenade attacks. The ultras also looted four service rifles of the security personnel. Nine jawans were injured in the attack, a PTI report informed.

However, the third grenade attack was carried out at a police station in Pulwama district.

All the four attacks have taken place in south Kashmir, which is emerging as stronghold of militants. "Nine people are injured and three of them are critical", said Rajesh Yadav, CRPF spokesman at Srinagar.

Terrorists also fired upon army camp with automatic weapons at Sopore.
